's targeting two major groups with this new move, women who have a strong preference for president obama in the polls and the everyday american. many of whom are likely suspicious of him right now especially considering his 47% remark and his thoughts that middle class income is about $250,000. this whole campaign switch is a sign romney knows he's in trouble and he can't depend on the debates to turn his poll numbers around. while he's not backtracking on his 47% remark, he does seem to be covering it up a bit. in a q&a session on univision he promised to be president for the 100% and to tackle illegal immigration. he says he's not in favor of mass deportation and that what he means by self-deportation is for people to decide on their own whether to go back home or enter this country legally. but when it comes to specific policy we haven't heard much from him. back with more. stay with us. action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. th

talking about his policies, which basically, president obama and the minority here, even with some significant modifications to accommodate the other side are prepared to move forward on. let's really -- i think, heed the advice he gave this country six nights ago and move forward with these policies. mr. tonko: representative courtney, you talk about that event and when he made that presentation, he did a long-term review and shorter focus over the last couple of years, last term, first term of president obama. but when he talked about the track record over the last decade -- he talked about 28 years of republican leadership versus 24 years of democratic leadership, and he talked about the outcome and jobs. and said that under the republican watch, 22 million jobs were created, under the democratic watch, 42 million. he said let's look at the record. let's check the scorecard and did the short-term outcome of the president obama administration, talking about the number of jobs created and gave a zero to what the republicans were advancing in the house. it's pretty obvious that the

by president obama, criticized by some influential people, including mitt romney, has a little bit of an image problem now. as president romney for example ben bernanke would lose his job. >> my view has been i would want to select someone who was a new member -- excuse me, a new person to that chairman's position, someone who shared my economic views. >> romney's running mate, budget hawk paul ryan, is not a fan either because ryan chided the chairman during a hill hearing earlier this year. >> a lot of us believe the federal reserve was too loose for too long in the 2003 to 2005 period and that's what in part led to the asset bubble and the malinvestment that occurred. i know you don't agree with that. because you don't agree with that, our fear is you're just going to repeat these same mistakes again but by orders of magnitude we don't even comprehend now. >> paul ryan is right about one thing. what the fed has done over the past few years has never happened before in history. the question is, will ryan and romney's words backfire? after all, ben bernanke could be the kingmaker or breaker.

, barack obama saying that he doesn't really consider egypt an ally or an enemy at this point, that it really is time will tell, this is a work in progress. that really is kind of a stunning change of position from the white house perspective. >> reporter: i think that that statement took many people by surprise and shocked them a great deal. part of the anti-u.s. sentiment, and there is an anti-u.s. sentiment in the clashes today and in the protests on tuesday and in the various countries where the protests are taking plaes, the u.s. has been -- egypt has been a major ally for the u.s. to the extent that five different u.s. administrations supported our dictator, mubarak. i think the white house realized, because over the past few minutes i've been reading statements, the white house realized what a shocking statement that was and it looks like they're trying to back pedal from this idea that egypt has been demoted as an ally. i think everybody right now feels how sensitive the situation is and understands this political jockeying for power and again to reiterate, it's -- the

president obama has snubbed israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu by refusing a meeting with netanyahu -- when netanyahu visits washington next week. the reported rift is said to center around u.s.-israeli tensions over iran, with netanyahu continuing to push for a military attack. on tuesday, he escalated his rhetoric say no one in the world can tell israel not to attack iran. >> the world says, "wait, there's still time." i say, "wait for what?" "wait until when?" those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before iran do not have a moral right to place a red light before israel. if iran knows there is no deadline, what will it do a question of exactly what it is doing. it is continuing without any interference toward obtaining nuclear weapons capability and from there, nuclear bombs. >> many have taken that to know who's comments as his most forceful rebuke -- have taken the prime minister's comments as the most forceful rebuke. united nations special envoy lakhdar brahimi is due to arrive in syria in the coming days for talks with both president bashar al-assad
insurance, the reason why i am leaning toward obama -- and i really do not know what obamacare is, but from what i understand ifrom mitt romney, he doesn't believe in any care. my husband has high blood pressure. he was not a mechanic ever insurance we went to, and he could not pass the physical. the insurance company would not injure him. i tried to buy him insurance. as soon as he said he was employed independent, nobody would injure him. that is my big issue. when people have worked their whole lives and they get sick, we should be able to buy insurance. host: dr. makary, what role -- and if you want to address her specific point, that is fine, but what role do the insurance companies play in this unaccountableness, as you call it? guest: we have had no good ways to measure the quality of health care. the insurance companies have been eager to get into the business of looking at performance and use it as a way to pay hospitals and doctors. the problem is, we have not had a good measure until now. there is a very exciting revolution taking place in medical care now. it is in medicare webs
to take the call to duty to get into action to protect us and keep us safe and thankfully, president obama recognizes the responsibilities of that oath as well and he has done a lot to protect us. bill: andy, for the families here, they approach this day every year with a sense of dread and for good reason. even if people who live in new york city and in washington, who are not directly impacted by the events 11 years ago, they too have a sense of dread when the day always approaches but it seems a little bit of that has chipped off every year as we move further and further away. even if you look at some of the video that was filed that day, it is starting to take on age when you see the taxis, the police cars, the firefighter uniforms and, as we move further away from that moment, i guess we'll digest it in our own personal way as we always do and i was just curious about you, how do you approach this day? >> well, you know i was there when the president was asked by arlen howard, this was on friday, september 14th, 2001, when the president visited the world trade center aftermath and met
working together. that is why it was president obama who restore the cuts that is why it was president obama who restore the cuts in the small business administration program to make loans to small businesses and to put america on the side of small business again. that is why it was president obama who gave dozens of tax cuts to america's small businesses and because he believes we have to do this together. let me talk about the economy. the other night, i said the republican case against the president was will let him a mass, he did not fix it all, fire him, put us all back in. [laughter] his case is i stopped the slide into depression, i laid the foundation for the long road to recovery, we have begun it, and we have the building blocks of the modern, new, different economy. [applause] i believe it is important every american decide whether i was right when i said i believe that the economy sustained so much damage -- keep identified in the quarter that is the three months period before the president took office, the economy strong -- shrunk 9%. we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. t
that threatens the very viability of the united states senate. last july the obama administration used the flimsiest of arguments, granted themselves the authority to waive federal welfare work requirements. and whether or not what they, the obama administration intends to accomplish with these waivers is good welfare policy has been the subject of robust debate. i'm not here to argue the merits or lack thereof of the underlying welfare policy goals of the obama administration. what i am here to do is to make a plea to my fellow senators, as senators we simply cannot let this action stand. if we fail to stand together as senators in defense of our constitutional duty to be the ones to draft legislation, we might as well pack up our bags and go home, because we will have opened the door for this administration and future administrations to unilaterally decide they can waive precedent, congressional intent, and actual legislative language as senators have scrupulously debated and compromised on. if we do not stand together as the united states senate, we will be ceding our authority to t
